See it if health and families are your concerns / u enjoy immersive theater / your political stance is on liberal side

Don't see it if dont feel like participating, just want to sit still and watch / you are conservative

"From the moment this charismatic and wacky bohemian steps on to the stage, he has everyone's full attention...He's that kind of performer you can't take your eyes off, one who makes you eager to join in. Yet while most of Bjerrum’s multi-art styles work well, there are some moments when his attempts come off as superfluous. A performer like Bjerrum needs no experimental gimmicks...A perfect example of fringe theater: quirky, experimental, and wholly unique."

"Bjerrum rapidly changes in and out of story-specific clothes while building suspense up to the relief revelation that his father is alive and well, his prickly personality unchanged...Whatever sympathy Bjerrum builds up over the course of his animated monologue is squandered in a lengthy rant about upcoming US elections. He'd be better off railing against Denmark's very own warmonger Anders Fogh Rasmussen."

"Bjerrum is a highly skilled theatre practitioner that performs with his inner light switched on to incandescent. His infectious enthusiasm for life is inspiring, and he has a brilliant ability to create harmony in a room in mere minutes...Throughout the piece, Malika Sia Graff provided a stunning live score to the unfolding exploration of self. She has a voice that melts your hard edges...It’s immersive, contemporary, and honest."
